Parental concern about their children’s health can lead to over-prescription of antibiotics, cautions Dr. David Samadi, Vice Chairman of the Department of Urology and Chief of Robotics and Minimally Invasive Surgery at The Mount Sinai Medical Center. A new study reveals that 10 million antibiotics for children are prescribed unnecessarily each year, most often as the results of parents pushing doctors. Over-prescription can cause more harm than good in the form of asthma, allergies, resistant strains of bacteria and even diabetes. As many childhood illnesses are caused by viruses and not bacteria Dr. Samadi recommends a watchful waiting approach. If children do not improve after a few days, doctors should reevaluate symptoms and consider an antibiotic approach.
